Consulting and Coaching


Why me?

I transitioned Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara to nonprofit status at the beginning of 2009, when our economy was in a tailspin.  Most people I talked to told me I would never be able to pull it off.  I moved forward anyway and was able to build the dojo from 4 members to currently 30+ and growing.  More notably perhaps, is the fact that I raised close to $50,000 in those three years.  Those donations enabled us to not only cover our major expenses, but also launch various community outreach programs, such as our program for low-income children in Santa Barbara.

I can help you with:

  1. Fundraising
  2. Dojo management
  3. Dojo promotion and marketing
  4. Social media strategy
  5. Creation of or transition to nonprofit status
  6. Dojo youth programs
  7. Outreach programs, using Aikido principles “off the mat”, such as AiKi Conflict Transformation© workshops
  8. Various other dojo business challenges
